by Brianna Crandall — November 11, 2020 — Planon and bGrid have announced a new partnership to combine Planon’s IWMS real estate, space, and asset management solutions with bGrid’s integrated sensor technology offerings. This will offer a broad spectrum of measurement tools to be able to monitor buildings and provide an engaging workplace environment for occupants while supporting more informed business decisions across the real estate portfolio.
bGrid specializes in Internet of Things (IoT) sensor solutions and has developed an integrated sensor that measures:
- Temperature (both infrared and air)
- Light intensity
- Carbon dioxide
- Volatile organic components (air quality)
- Sound intensity
Integration of these measurements with Planon’s popular Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) will allow organizations to truly optimize the performance of their workplace, says the company.
Planon’s IWMS supports business processes in five key areas, operated from a single technology platform and database repository:
- Real estate and lease management
- Facilities and space management
- Asset and maintenance management
- Project management
- Environmental sustainability
Bart Melis, CEO at bGrid, commented:
We are proud to be selected as a Planon partner and combine our expertise to enable organizations to maintain better, smarter and more flexible workspaces. Together, we believe we can create sustainable and valuable change within the real estate industry today and in many years to come.
Iwan van Eldijk, VP Partnering and Alliances at Planon, remarked:
Through our partnership, we’re able to combine bGrid’s sensor technology with Planon’s IWMS to enable building owners, building occupiers and commercial service providers to more effectively track assets and smart devices within their buildings. We’re constantly looking for the best and most innovative technology partner solutions to help enrich the Planon solutions and offer end-to-end solutions to our customers all over the world.
